Away the times of dirty self-made ebuilds for the Squeezebox, Gentoo now has the squeezecenter ebuild which does the job.

Somehow after installation, you have to reset the root PW of MYSQL:

Code: Reset MYSQL root password

> ## reset mysql root password
> /usr/sbin/mysqld --skip-grant-tables --user=root &
> mysql
  USE mysql
  UPDATE user
  -> SET password=password("newpassword")
  -> WHERE user="root";
  flush privileges;
> killall mysqld
> /etc/init.d/mysql restart

> ## test new root password
> /usr/bin/mysqladmin -p -u root password 'newpassword'
The rest is just great.
